Topping

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • For the topping: mix oats, flour, brown sugar, ½ cup of white sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl. Combine butter with the flour mixture using fingers or a fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in walnuts and set aside.
